Wat fat, ur in the healthy range ! pls dont let those words (of advice) pull you dwn, you can always tell the interviewer that you are in a strict regime to put yourself back in shape and that your skin's peeling because you are making yourself more confident for this job ! wheres the determination junior !!!!

On a serious note, the skin check will be conducted by pros under strong light? Will they give you a chance to explain your skin conditions?

I would be very wary of going for the interview with peeling skin if those cosmetics people do the skin test. Some time ago a girl on this forum was rejected for that a similar reason ( a temporary rash). By the way Sherrielyn you cannot get taller once you over a certain age. :roll:

women stop growing at the age of 24, men at 26 as told by my family doctor. so why cast out a chance when we have yet to try ? not as though i'm asking them to go for surgery. and its also healthy to do stretching. i dont find theres anything to loose. theres always a glimpse of hope. :)

That is BS! You stop growing in your late teens and your family doctor did not tell you that unless he had been on the gin at the time or just fancied a good laugh or perhaps you suffer from a hearing defect? Some of the posts I read here are the most shameful things imaginable on the other hand they can be a good laugh. Try reading a few other parts of this forum. :lol: :lol:

BS ?
But if you try to search online, it does state that men stops growing at the age of 25 and women at 21. :)

there might be some posts that can make you laugh because you think its shameful but isnt a forum a place where you ask and receive (be it gd or bad) ? everyone here, is interested to know more bout the interviews or least some information that helps and I dont see trying to build confidence in the forumers is a bad thing.

The ages I mentioned are a known fact and you should check your sources;

http://www.bigsiteofamazingfacts.com/when-will-you-stop-growing

Better still use the Encyclopedia Britannica which is factual and should be available in the library and online. Have a good think about your posts they do more damage than enough (along with a good many others!). With claims like yours I am not surprised the western press has such a laugh at Asians. :roll:
